Dispute over sharing stolen property | Clashes erupt among Turkish-backed factions in “Peace Spring” areas
Villages in the “Peace Spring” areas in al-Hasakeh countryside have witnessed infighting between Turkish-backed factions, following a dispute over sharing stolen property from civilian homes in the areas of Ras al-Ain and Tal Tamer.
According to Observatory sources, the villages of Shalah, Diyabiya and Rihania have witnessed clashes between the members of Sultan Murad and Ahrar al-Sharqiya, during the last 24 hours, as Sultan Murad sold the Ahrar al-Sharqiya’s share of the stolen goods. While some members are prepared to leave the areas of the “Peace Spring” and go to other areas.
The clashes resulted in injuries on both sides, some in serious conditions.
Turkish-backed factions in the “Peace Spring” areas continue to commit violations against civilians and dispose of and rob their property.
On August 7, SOHR sources said that the factions are stealing the remaining furniture in the village of Tel Mohammed in Abu Racine countryside.
The factions also set the house of an Arab civilian on fire in the village of Um Ushbeh.
Turkish-backed factions had opened workshops for recycling plastics and manufacturing agricultural pipes, as the materials for these industries are available. Large quantities of irrigation pipes were stolen from agricultural projects in Ras al-Ain countryside (Sari Kanier), Tal Tamer and Abu Racine.
